Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in La Liga on Thursday, August 13.
Thursday morning's La Liga transfer talk news roundup:
Manchester United are reportedly ready to shelve their interest in Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish.
After the Englishman played an influential role in keeping Villa in the Premier League, the West Midlands outfit may be prepared to cash in on their star man.
However, they have refused to budge on a valuation which is said to be in excess of £50m, a figure regarded as too high by United.
According to the Evening Standard, the Europa League semi-finalists may return with an offer for Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek.
Although well stocked for options in the centre of the pitch, the Netherlands international could provide competition for Bruno Fernandes in the number 10 role.
Real Madrid have also been linked with the 23-year-old in the past.
Barcelona have reportedly put an £81m price tag on the head of winger Ousmane Dembele following reports that Manchester United have made initial contact over a possible summer switch.
The Red Devils are in the market for a new wide attacker during the ongoing transfer window, with Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho their top target.
However, Dortmund's refusal to lower their £108m asking price and subsequent public insistence that Sancho will not be sold this summer has forced United to consider alternatives.
Dembele is thought to be one of the players on their shortlist, and Spanish publication Sport reports that Barcelona would be willing to consider offers for the 23-year-old.
However, the Spanish giants are looking to recoup a large chunk of the fee they paid to sign him from Dortmund three years ago and would therefore demand €90m (£81.4m) from any potential suitors.
Barcelona recognise that such a deal would not be likely with the impact of the coronavirus lockdown still being felt and so are willing to loan Dembele out for a season, so long as the agreement includes an obligation to buy.
The Frenchman has not played a single minute of competitive football since November due to injury and was limited to only five league appearances in 2019-20.
